Abstract

Although Robotics have been designed for education for several decades now, only recently they started being broadly used in education, formal and non formal. In this context many different technologies have emerged accompanied by relevant learning material and resources. Our observation is that the vast number of learning activities is driven by multiple “personal pedagogies” and thus it results in the fragmentation of the domain. To address this problem we discuss in the paper the construct of “activity plan template”, a generic design tool that will facilitate different stakeholders (teachers, instructors, researchers) to design learning activities for different robotic toolkits. In the paper we discuss the characteristics of the activity plan template and the research process of generating such a template. Since we report work in progress, we present here the first version of the activity plan template, the construction of which is based on a set of best practices identified.
